FP Presents: Dream Girl

For many years Free People has told love stories — we wanted to explore what a love story could look like in the near future….

Humans use technology to improve their lives, to forge connections, to create time that doesn’t exist, to replace real interactions. When we devise a second version of ourselves on social media, do we lose a piece of our true selves in the process? Do our digital connections threaten our real life relationships? What happens if the filtered characters we’ve imagined take on a life of their own?

This is so beautifully done- I’m itching to see what happens. Whose music was used for the soundtrack?

Was für eine wunervolle Hibellsmildersammmungen. Ich sehe Figuren und Himmelsspiegelungen finde ich besonders schön. Ich bin auch eine große Himmelsguckerin, nur nicht so der Projektmensch ;-)VG April

Hei Moa venn! SÃ¥ skjønne farger. At naturen lager den vakreste kunst er det liten tvil om…Bildet av hunden din med teppene var bare helt nyyydelig. Ha en fin ukestart!!Go`klem fra Maia

This is probably true all over the urban US anyway. Young people don’t make things with their hands anymore unless you include typing. Sewing, carving, pottery, model building painting or just about any arts and crafts are no longer part our our teens’ routines. Teens are no longer exposed to the auto shop, wood shop, metal shop and graphics and arts as teens in school as was my generation. A screwdriver, hammer and pliers are about the only tools they could manage to use.Can’t use a simple ruler for anything either.

I loved this short film and can’t believe how I still think about it (almost 2 years later). I need the second part ASAP! The curiosity and confusion are overwhelming.
